8 inch Classic Sewing Shears
Branded with our Wilkinson trademark, paying homage to Thomas Wilkinson & Sons whom we incorporated in 1875.
Our sidebent shears are world famous and used by professionals due to their unrivalled quality and craftsmanship. They offer precision cutting for all types of fabric used in dressmaking, sewing and tailoring. Our Classic sidebents feature two knife edge blades meaning they are super sharp for cleanly cutting a wide range of fabrics, from cotton, jersey, linen and many more. The term ‘sidebent’ refers to the shape of the scissor; the handle that is bent upright allows the shears to cut flat along a table, therefore not disturbing any fabric you are cutting, allowing you to cut easily in a straight and accurate line.
A slightly smaller size, perfect for those with small to medium sized hands or who struggle to lift heavy scissors, they provide the same precise cutting as a larger pair of shears. Unsure about which size is right for you? Head to our blog section and read all about our advice with ‘Scissors by hand size‘.
A design perfected by us for centuries, they really are tools for life. The striking glossy black handles are hand painted for durability, comfort and their striking design.
They will arrive packaged in our signature William Whiteley presentation box with bespoke foam and are also available with bespoke laser engraving creating a truly special and unique gift.
